At work, it’s what people can do that matters. Everyone contributes to the workplace with unique abilities and experiences. That includes many of the nearly 50 million Americans with disabilities. Your organization can help advance the employment of people with disabilities and achieve your business objectives. If you have a lead for these job seekers, contact Stephanie Potter at SRVS Community Employment Services, 901-869-9205, and let her tell you more about the power of inclusion in the workplace.
Here are a group of people supported by SRVS who’d like to contribute to the success of a workplace:
Jerrell would really like to work in a restaurant. In fact, he
specifically mentioned Subway or the Marriott! He would like to clean,
especially wash dishes. Jerrell is a kind, quiet young man and he would really
prefer working in a smaller, quieter environment. If you need an employee that will
be a dedicated worker who has a great smile and wonderful disposition, then
Jerrell is the one for you!
Tammy loves warehouse work!
Tammy just loves to work! In her words, "I love learning new
things!" Tammy has great reading skills and loved her assessment of
picking and filling orders to be loaded on the truck for vending machines.
At her other assessment site she excelled at folding linens, putting them on
the shelves and arranging dishes and glassware in the store. If you need
an employee that pays attention to detail, asks for instruction if she's not
clear, and loves learning new things, then Tammy is the one for you!
Sonji wants to work in the community. She doesn't have a
specific industry that she'd like to work in, but doing a good job is important
to her. She listens to instructions and with a little practice is able to
complete tasks on her own. Sonji loves to work and keep busy.
Walter likes to be helpful. He'd prefer to
work indoors. He wants a job that's 20-30 hours a week and wouldn't mind
working on Saturdays. He loves writing names and phone numbers in a book
he keeps. To compensate for some of his reading limitations, he can use colors
of products to match up for stocking. Disassembling cardboard boxes is a task
he enjoys doing.
